For A Good Reason|احتمالاخیربوده

“167th story”

Once upon a time;

a king had a loyal right-hand man. The right-hand man had a saying; “It was for a good reason.”

He used this saying on any matter or occasion.

One day the king and his right-hand man were exploring the mountains.

 And suddenly, the king’s hand got stuck in a stony place. They tried very hard to release the king’s hand, but unfortunately, he lost one finger.

The right-hand man said: “It was probably for a good reason.”

The king was in pain and got very angry about the right-hand man’s stupid comment and ordered to put him in a dungeon.

One year passed, and the king went to the mountain for hunting. A tribe attacked him and took the king as a prisoner.

The tribe’s belief was to sacrifice a human once a year for their Gods.

But concerning their Gods, that person had to be completely healthy.

When they saw the king doesn’t have a finger, they let him free.

Then the king remembered his right-hand man’s words when he was in pain of losing a finger. “It was probably for a good reason.”

The king ordered to free his right-hand man.

When the king told the right-hand man, tribe’s story, he said: “It was probably for a good reason.”

The king said: “Why?”

The right-hand man said: “If I weren’t in jail, I would be on that hunting with you, and the tribe would sacrifice me after finding you unhealthy.”

Many things happen for a good reason, and we don’t understand it at that painful, challenging moment.

  21. Credo che a volte non dovremmo chiererci perchè, o voler sapere per forza perchè le cose accadano. propabilemnte ognuno ha il suo destino segnato, e quel destino ci appartiene anche se a noi sembra che nel presente le cose vadano male poi potrebbero rivelarsi a nostro favore.
